"Security pulled them out and after like ages of him being aggressive, pushing them around and stuff and getting up on a table, the security guards put him on the ground and held him there for like 10/15 minutes before the police arrived and took him away.

Apparently both Fylde and Grizedale porters were called as well. Security warned him that they'd call the police and he said he 'didn't care about the popo.'"

The Tab Lancaster contacted Lancashire Police about the altercation, to which they responded with the following statement:

"We were called to reports of a fight at Fylde College bar, at around 9:55pm on Tuesday evening.

A 21 year old male was arrested for being drunk and disorderly; he has since been issued with a penalty notice for disorder."
